Yesterday was a very sad day about our nation and technology society (APPLE). The co-finder and CEO of Apple and Pixar Animation died at the age of 56. A man that changed the way we use computers and the way we think about them!! The creator of iMac, iPhone, iPods and iPad. The ONE AND ONLY STEVE JOBS. Even if i didn’t know him personally I felt like loosing a friend a very good friend!
“Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of APPLE.”
President Barack Obama said in a statement that Jobs
“exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity.”
“Steve was among the greatest of American innovators — brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world and talented enough to do it,” he said.
Steve Jobs’s Speech:
”No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
Reaction to Jobs’ death came from far and wide.
“Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Jobs,” President Obama said in a written statement. “Steve was among the greatest of American innovators – brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.”
